I did it

I got a new job working for a major publisher! Penguin Random House. I kept it under wraps from everyone, and thank goodness for technology. Didn’t even have to miss work!

Welp. If you believed that, well I don’t know what to tell ya. What I really did was begin reading Thirteen Reasons Why. I’m near certain I’ll release a video next week once I finish it. Too many people talking not to throw my thoughts into the fray.

That’s all. Minor announcement.

Campaigns and Politics and Books, oh my

Can you name a single presidential candidate still in the race who hasn’t recently published a book? Maybe one of the lesser known candidates who has no chance at winning their party’s nomination, but all of the bigger names have. It’s scary.

These candidates are constantly holding events and fundraisers, and participating in debates in order to get their message out. AND they’re publishing books around the same time. I’m not sitting here saying that we don’t need to hear about the people who could potentially hold the highest office in our country, but will we ever reach the point at which we proclaim enough is enough?

On top of all the press the candidates receive they also do things like host SNL or private fundraisers with their celebrity friends. Why not just give them a TV sitcom too?

I get it. It’s the presidential race and it only happens every four years. But I’m about sick of every candidate releasing a book that coincides with the race. It’s not like they help. The people who buy and read them are already in the corner of the party or candidate.

Have you read any books written by political candidates recently? You’ve got many to choose from. I actually don’t think I’ve ever read a book by a candidate.
